On the eve of New Years Eve, my best friend Christine married the love of her life, Ryan. The glorious day began at 9am sharp, as all the bridesmaids gathered together at the Driskill hotel in downtown Austin for hair, makeup, mimosas and relaxation. Before Jeff Loftin Photography and his team showed up to document the day, I snapped a few photos while we lived the life of leisure in the bridal suite.
This hotel was the perfect. The beautiful room was full of natural light and exquisite touches. French doors swung open to greet the beautiful morning, overlooking popular 6th street. Sunny and in the low 70s, you couldn’t ask for better weather for a wedding — right in the middle of winter, too! The bed’s headboard had an elaborate design, providing a beautiful backdrop for many of the photos.
Reghan, Christine’s flower girl, hung out with the “big girls,” and even got her hair and makeup done. She’s such a doll.
Christine, you were a beautiful bride. Thank you so much for asking me to be your Maid of Honor and for your stellar friendship since 6th grade! Can’t wait to see what the future holds for more milestones and fun. I know you’ll be by my side (or at the very least, on the phone!) Love you!
